Round trip, the trek takes 14 days for those trekkers who are in good physical health, have normal hiking/trekking experience and who can walk up to 6-7 hours per day without any difficulties. Laying the foundation for our trek, trekkers/hikers fly from Kathmandu to Lukla (2827 m) on the most scenic and the most challenging flight you may ever take. After landing up in Lukla airport, you will be introduced to our porter (We will hire guide in Kathmandu only) and then commence trekking to Phakding. The next day, you will ascend through the Dudh Koshi valley to the Sherpa Settlement of Namche Bazaar, an official capital of Sherpas. This is a small town in the east part of Everest region where you can enjoy the local food, culture & tradition of Sherpa community people. The town is also popular for Yak cheese.

In this town, we will stay one night to give a proper acclimatization to our body since many of trekkers suffer from heath issues related to high altitude. Our trail then respectively ascends to Tyangboche, walking through a lovely forest of rhododendrons and then to Dingboche. Enroute, you will be rewarded with the views of Everest soaring behind Nuptse, Lhotse, Ama-Dablam, Kangtega and Tawache peaks. Our second rest day will be in Dingboche, where we will take a short hike up to Chukung and then descend down to Dingboche for an overnight stay. After, crossing over the suspension bridge and passing through Lobuche, several Buddhist monasteries and Sherpa villages, you will finally reach Base Camp. You can spend a night at the camp in a tent or continue your trek towards Gorakshep. As you climb towards higher altitude, you will feel that the air is getting thinner and thinner. The trail then descends from Kala Patthar to Pheriche. From Pheriche, you will retrace your footsteps back to Namche Bazaar, Phakding and finally to Lukla. You will spend one more night in Lukla before flying back to Kathmandu the next day.
